    Congrats on your engagement and welcome to the forum! It's a tough decision but for me and my FI we wanted a DW from the beginning. It still has stress but a lot less and can be much more intimate, which is what we were looking for. Once you narrow down what is most important to you both for the wedding day you'll be able to make your decision and the forum is a great place to turn to for ideas on absolutely everything. Good luck!

        I suggest Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Santo Domingo...all these cities have great colonial history, rich-fun culture and beautiful beaches..

          Congrats and welcome!! It's a tough decision, but we also wanted something a bit more intimate (and affordable!) so we decided DW. Good luck and happy planning!

                Jamaica bride here! We just found it less expensive to do a destination, but many brides here spent more than they would on a stateside wedding. It just depends on you as a person and what you are willing to spend
                good luck with the planning!

                      Congrats! Ill echo what someone elseo said - it can be as cheap or as expensive as you want! For us, we always wanted a DW. However, the guest list is no more intimate than it would have been at home! We are having a really hard time with it. But, on the other hand, a lot of the people we are inviting would not even come to a wedding at home, much less mexico! Good luck!
